Film screening and feedback sessions
October 23, 2018
Fabrica’s current exhibition is Harley Weir’s ‘Homes’, which depicts photographs made over a ten-day period in October 2016 in the migrant and refugee camps of Calais, taken immediately before and during the clearing of this provisional settlement. The show forms part of Brighton Photo Biennial.
In addition to the exhibition, we’ll be screening ‘The Other Side of Hope’, a film by Aki Kaurismäki.
“With hilarious sight gags, poker-faced one-liners and a toe-tapping rockabilly soundtrack, Kaurismäki’s latest balances his unparalleled wit with a pressing critique of the unforgiving bureaucracy that greets vulnerable asylum seekers in modern-day Europe. Humane and sincere, it’s proof of cinema’s power to tell stories that matter, with beauty and heart.” Curzon Artificial Eye
Before the screening starts, we’ll also be faciliatitating a series of group feedback sessions for photographers and film makers. Register your interest by emailing jim@ and then bring your photos along (printed or on a screen) and in groups, we’ll all look at each others’ work and offer feedback on it. You can bring along work at any stage of completion, and at any level of technique and knowledge. The hope is that these sessions will kickstart long term peer support groups as your work grows and develops.

There are two spaces directly outside Fabrica and there are also disabled parking spaces on Ship Street, Middle Street and West Street. Fabrica have two entrances to the gallery space, one on Ship Street and the other on Duke Street. The entrance on Duke Street offers a wheelchair accessible ramp to allow more people easy access to our gallery.

Fabrica Friday Lates
The After Hours Bar at Fabrica is the ideal place to soak up the buzz of Brighton this summer whilst in our beautiful and atmospheric gallery, a former Regency Church right in the heart of the city. Fabrica, Brighton’s best-known hidden gem, is the perfect place to catch up with friends or make some new ones before heading out into the night.
Relax with a cocktail and enjoy the atmosphere of being surrounded by world-class contemporary installations. Friday Lates gives the gallery over to the grown-ups with an informal selection of cocktails, beers, ciders and wines.
